Application Criteria

The University of Miami Herbert Business School welcomes applications from individuals that have earned or are in the process of earning an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university. The Admission Committee assesses each candidate on a number of dimensions including academic performance and professional leadership experience. We seek students with the intellectual and interpersonal abilities to contribute to the classroom experience, to excel academically, and who possess the leadership potential to succeed.

The personal statement is a chance for the admission committee to get to know you, your experience and goals, and what you may bring to the program. A personal statement prompt and supplemental essay prompt are provided within the application to help guide you.

Current Resume

The resume (or CV) should outline any current and previous professional and academic achievements that you would like the committee to consider.

Official Academic Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts may be uploaded within the BusinessCAS application in order to expedite the review process. However, official transcripts from all post-secondary attended are required for enrollment.

Official GMAT (or GRE) score

Many full-time graduate business programs will require a GMAT or GRE score for admission. However, this may be submitted after your application is received. The committee may also consider requests to waive the test requirement on a case-by-case basis. Programs that do not require the GMAT or GRE include all Executive MBA program, the Professional MBA, the Master of Science in Leadership, and the Master of International Business.

The number of recommendations required may vary depending on the program in which you are applying. You will find this information listed within the Program Materials section of the BusinessCAS application.
